Asked by ehcpdeveloper on 2010-01-20

can I use qemu and virutalbox on same ubuntu 9.10 ?
must I remove qemu ?

is there a way to use both ?

This seems something like, "virtualbox tries to kick off qemu ?"

I used qemu , and i liked it, i use virtualbox, and i like it. but not all virtualmachines in one oper. system. The only way is to try it.
Afaik it is possible.

on separate systems, no problem.
my question was about running them on same computer.
I cannot cary two computers all the time :)

It shouldn't be a problem - QEMU and VirtualBox use different kernel driver accelerator modules which don't seem to conflict on my Karmic systems. You just need a lot of memory to run both simultaneously :-)

ehcpdeveloper (ehcpdeveloper) said : #6

you run, but how ?
how can I run too.
I got error when trying to run Virtualbox, complaining about virtualbox module

so, my question still open.

sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup in the terminal and virtualbox will run fine.........

ehcpdeveloper (ehcpdeveloper) said : #8

sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
that failed, no file called vboxdrv.
I use Ubuntu 9.10

The error while I start virtualbox-> a virtual machine:

VirtualBox can't operate in VMX root mode. Please disable the KVM kernel extension, recompile your kernel and reboot (VERR_VMX_IN_VMX_ROOT_MODE).

Can you help with this problem?
